Ben Collins, better known as The Stig from BBC's internationally acclaimed Top Gear, was the benchmark of speed against which hundreds of celebrities set themselves, and the man that everyone - including Formula One stars Nigel Mansell and Jenson Button - tried and failed to beat. He is also the go-to guy for Hollywood car chases (driving as Bond in Skyfall, and for Batman in The Dark Knight Rises), and has raced successfully in almost every class imaginable, from Touring Cars and Le Mans 24 Hour to the American Stock Car circuit.

Project Cars 2 has finally landed! It's been an incredible journey that started, for me, six years ago with a fast flowing conversation with our fearless leader (Ian Bell) in London about creating an ultra realistic driving simulation. The scope seemed far too ambitious, or impossible. The result is breathtaking - besides the stellar graphics, it's the cars we care about and the way they handle. They feel real & alive, and the range of machinery & tracks should keep all of us speed freaks busy & entertained for the foreseeable future. No two laps ever the same, because the track is alive, responding to climate and weather LIKE NO OTHER GAME can. Get dirty, get sideways, get wet, get in the snow and enjoy the ride 👊👊👊 #driveitlikeyoustoleit #projectcars2 @projectcarsgame huge thanks to all the developers @ #slightlymadstudios for digging so hard the last 2 years to create this step change in driving experience.

Just remembering this fun shoot with #TOPGEAR and the rollercoaster expert who insisted that a car would corkscrew inside a tunnel the same as if it was on rails, despite being coated in ice & sewage.. hmmm.. physics proved otherwise!
Loving it in #Seahawks country
